The extensive railway system of Northern France is of special strategical importance in connecting the armies along the front by enabling reinforcements to be rapidly moved from place to place as required. To keep the lines free for that, most of the transport of provisions, stores, and munitions in rear of the trench lines is effected by means of light railways, specially laid down for the purpose.–Owing to the reckless methods of German bomb-dropping airmen In the neighbourhood of Salonika, as elsewhere, and their deliberate disregard of the Red Cross symbol on hospital buildings and tents,
